Wernick Enters the Modular Housing Market

Social housing landlord, Valleys to Coast (V2C) and modular building specialist, Wernick Buildings have been awarded Welsh Government funding to build eight modular homes in Bridgend.

Construction will begin in 2018 at Wernick Building’s manufacturing facility at Kenfig. The new factory was opened in June by the First Minister of Wales, Carwyn Jones. The modular homes will be made up of individual factory built modules, complete with fitted appliances, heating and electrics, which will then be delivered and combined on-site to form a complete house. Modular homes can be delivered up to 50% faster than traditional construction methods,  reducing costs and environmental impacts.

Funding for these homes was made available through the Innovative Housing Programme which aims to help inform Welsh Government, Housing Associations and Local Authorities about the type of homes it should support in the future. The project will contribute to the 20,000 affordable homes target set by Welsh Government.
